On February 8\, the UNM Art Mu seum will open Bound Together: Seeking Pleasure in Books\, an exhibition th at celebrates the book\, from nineteenth-century photographic albums to lim ited edition and unique artist books\, elaborately illustrated works of lit erature\, unusual pop-up books\, mediaeval manuscript facsimiles and archit ectural folios\, to name just some of the objects in the exhibition. Though the digital age is very much upon us\, carrying with it many publishing ca sualties\, books continue to be produced and cherished as they have for mil lennia. The dichotomy that books present is that they are simultaneously pr ivate objects meant to be held in one’s hands and read often in private\, y et are also objects mass produced\, available to large audiences and viewed and or read in very public arenas.

\n

S ome of the works in the exhibition include Henri Matisse’s Le Florilege des Amours\, Some Memories of Drawing by Georgia O’Keeffe\, a first edition of An Autobiography by Frank Lloyd Wright and The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer\, illustrated by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and printed at Kelmscott press by Wi lliam Morris. Select contemporary artists in the exhibition who have used t he book as a vehicle of expression include Kara Walker\, Robert Heinecken\, Ed Ruscha\, Barbara de Genevieve\, Julie Chen and Enrique Chagoya.
